Hurvitz Brain Sciences Summer Student Research Program

Summer studentships typically run from May to September of each year. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in a university program and have at least a B+ average in their most recent year of study. Summer student positions through the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program are not posted. Instead, students are responsible for contacting individual scientists whose research may be of interest to see if they are willing to supervise a student and to discuss potential projects.

Summer studentships are offered on a matching basis (at least 1:1), whereby the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program provides some funding (about $3,000) and the supervisor pays the rest for a minimum of 12 weeks.

Application form: 2020 Hurvitz Brain Sciences Summer Student Application Form

Deadline to apply: Friday, March 27, 2020 at 4 p.m.

Scientists apply directly for these awards with a specific student and project in mind. A supervisor may submit applications for up to two separate summer students (and a student may only be listed on any one application); however, the supervisor may only be awarded funding for a maximum of one student.

All scientists in the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program have been contacted about whether they would like to hire summer students in 2020. Below is a list of those who have expressed interest. Please click on their names to visit their web profiles and learn more about their research. The list will be updated on a regular basis.

  • Biological Sciences: None at this time
  • Evaluative Clinical Sciences: Black, Goldstein
  • Physical Sciences: Hynynen

List above last updated: Jan. 8, 2020

Overseeing the selection process will be a review committee comprised of members from the Hurvitz Brain Sciences Research Program. Awards will be announced in early May.
